Note that the official International breed name for our Finnish Lapphunds is the Finnish term Suomenlapinkoira. This is the breed name used in Finland and also by the World Canine Organisation (FCI).  The Finnish Lapphund Club uses the name Finnish Lapponian Dog as its English translation of the official breed name.  For historical and linguistic reasons, it is unlikely that English speaking countries will adopt this in the forseeable future.
